Wigan should replace Hastings with Shaun Johnson


Recommended Posts

If Wigan tried to sign Shaun Johnson I would not be surprised if a bitter Kevin Sinfield used his connections at the RFL to try to scuttle it -- for the good of Leeds.

I have no idea why the idea of Wigan signing Shaun Johnson has been met with so much resistance.  He has been a world class player and still is when he is on form.  He is only 30 years old and a

Johnson was credited with more try assists than anyone in the NRL last year, despite playing for the Sharks and suffering a season ending injury with about 5 games remaining. He was excellent last yea

I never understand comments like this. I am at a loss to understand what you think you are achieving by pretending not to know who Shaun Johnson is.

So signing a fading,inconsistent NRL player coming back from a major injury with a history of sulking & slagging off former clubs is a recipe for all Wigan’s so called woes ?

Like I said, he is taking the preverbial.

Johnson's recent form, when fit, has actually been good. But "when fit" is an important part of that sentence.

By we, do you mean England? I think we do, his name is Lewis Dodd.  The key question is will he get the chance to shine as Sam Walker has.

I wonder how he’d have developed here as a player if he had never left ?

If he’d been in the likes of Wigan/Saints or Leeds setups,probably very much like he has.

Basically pointing out to the Op that Shaun Johnson wouldn't be some massive draw to bring in loads of new fans to Wigan if they were to sign him , only the real hardcore fans would have an inkling 

Also the assumption that he is actually any good anymore

But you knew exactly who he was and so do many 1000s of UK RL fans. Don't pretend that they don't.

About 3-4k less Wigan fans are attending games than 5+ years ago - so no they are not.

They have to try and make it exciting to go to Wigan again. The club's fans have had over 3 decades of bringing exciting names to the club. There are good players and there are players you can market. Johnson will create a buzz in the media and in the town, bringing Williams back will hardly register (even though he is a good player). The club is still riding high at the top yet is haemorrhaging fans year on year. Everyone can see they are taking their eyes off the ball.

He has been a world class player and still is when he is on form.  He is only 30 years old and a high profile name.

I for one would love to see him play in Super League.
